DREAM11 IPL 2020 : Team Sunrisers Hyderabad : Complete Squad Analysis, Strengths, Weaknesses, Prediction

UAE : Like any good team, SRH has developed its core team players in Warner, Williamson, Bhuvaneshwar and Rashid over the years. Bracketing them are all-rounders, bowlers and youngsters like Manish Pandey, Bairstow, Vijay Shanker, Mohammad Nabi, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg and Samad. Compared to the previous one, the current SRH team is quite well balanced.

Warner will have a tough time selecting his bowlers as he has a mix of spinners and pacers to chose from. As to batsmen too, introducing the bright youngsters who are rearing to go is a big task. Opportunities given to youngsters might make or break them. Hence intelligent team rotation is the key.

Sunrisers Hyderbad IPL 2020 Team Weaknesses

  • If the top 4 batsmen fail, the lower order batsmen are not match finishers, they will be left tinkering around.  
  • The best in SRH are overseas players, but aren’t just 4 of them allowed?
  • Even if Bhuvaneshwar and Rashid khan do a good job, if the other 3 Indian bowlers give away plenty of runs, then this team cannot defend a total of even 180 runs.
  • Shakib Al Hasan will be dearly missed.
  • In the absence of some overseas players in the beginning of the tournament, SRH has to stay afloat with the help of the experienced ones until the return of these players.
